Certificate in Financial Planning

All advisers are required by their regulator, The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), to pass exams known as the Certificate in Financial Planning or equivalent before they can provide financial advice.

The Certificate in Financial Planning is ideal for those who intend to become financial advisers or who work in a related administrative or technical support role. It develops and understanding of the sector and highlights the priorities of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Financial Services Skills Council (FSSC) and satisfies their requirements for qualifications for financial advisers.

By completing the Certificate advisers gain a solid grounding in general and financial planning advice. The qualification develops their understanding of the following:-

  • Regulatory issues
  • The mechanics and purpose of the main investment products
  • The process of giving advice to clients

It addresses the subject of investment and risk which is an area highlighted in recent years as a weakness on the part of many financial advisers.

Successful completion of the certificate will demonstrate advisers knowledge and understanding of the market and will confirm their ability to function effectively as a qualified provider of financial advice.
